Former UKIP Senedd member Neil Hamilton claimed a total £840.10 in expenses to cover Severn bridge toll fees during his time at the Senedd.


Hamilton incurred the fees commuting from his mansion home in Wiltshire to the Senedd in Bae Caerdydd.


According to Welsh Parliament data, the current UKIP leader amassed the expenses between June 2016 and January 2019— a month after the fees were abolished in December 2018.


Hamilton represented Canolbarth a Gorllewin Cymru in the Senedd between 2016 and 2021.


He ran for reëlection in 2021 in Dwyrain De Cymru, but failed to win a seat after his party secured only 2% of the vote in the region. He also contested the Islwyn constituency, but finished in sixth place with just 507 votes.
